Prune the plant every spring. In the summer, remove any wild shoots growing from the stem or roots. Place the plant in full sun or partial shade. Water the standard rose generously immediately after planting. Give it extra water during dry periods.
The rose is grafted. This ensures they have extra strong branches. The roses have a longer lifespan and are extra winter hardy.

We exclusively supply A-Quality rose bushes (as rated by the ENA, European Nurserystock Association), with 3 strong branches.
Soak these pot grown roses in a bucket of lukewarm water for 30 minutes prior to planting. Prepare a spacious hole, loosen the soil with a fork and improve the soil with an added mix of some compost and granulated cow manure. Remove the rose from its pot and plant your rose bush at the correct depth. Best is around half an inch deeper than the top of the root ball. Fill the hole with the improved soil, heel well in and water generously. Full sun or part shade is necessary for abundant flowering.
This standard rose bush will also look wonderful potted up for on the patio. Use an attractive planter with holes in the base. Cover the base with potsherds or a layer of hydro-pellets followed by a layer of fresh potting compost – mix in some granulated cow manure, fill the pot with soil, press well down. Water your standard rose immediately after planting and give it a spot in full sun or part shade.
All standard roses need pruning every spring. In March, prune hard back to 3-5 eyes (buds). Leave 4 or 5 thick branches per stem. The roses that we supply have already been pruned properly so they will not require pruning again for another 18 months. In the summer remove any suckers that grow from the trunk or the roots. These are recognisable by the thorns and the seven fingered leaves.
Standard roses require a lot of feed for profuse flowering so do fertilise your roses regularly. Use granulated cow manure in the winter around the base of the stem. Layer mixed organic mulch in early spring. Use special rose fertiliser in July (see the pack for correct dosage.
This is a strong and sturdy standard rose bush with fantastic blooms. The roses are semi- double and appear all summer long. This particular standard rose bush will look great in a planter and of course exceptional in the garden. Enjoy it wherever you plant it.
